Do you use Outlook Express or read your mail from the server?

All I can suggest is that you check your e-mail settings which should be: Incoming mail: pop3 and then your server name and Outgoing: SMTP etc.

With OE, go to Tools/Mail tab/Accounts/Properties and check your settings re e-mail address etc.

Here's what your settings should look like in OE with your ISP name entered instead of freeserve (which is mine.) [IMG]click here[/IMG]

Your username is usually the part of your e-mail address after the @ sign.

if you use outlook express or outlook , have you got the mail saved which gave you your user details?
